I had breakfast here with my daughter. The menu isn't for breakfast per se, but there are items that fit the bill. I had a delicious shakshuka. The ambience is nice and the service is fine.

After a five year absence, I revisited Café d'Alsace. Perhaps my only complaint would be the banquette seats, being 20% of the restaurant's seating: They've sunken down due no doubt to the increasing weight and girth of its' patrons. Tis a nationwide trend. The reduced...More
